Hi
I refer to http://archive.org/details/archbishopmittyhs - some time ago this contained many interesting books -- I consulted some of them -- but it seems they have now all been removed? Any reason?

Dear Jeff

Thanks. Agree that it is empty now but such was not the case some months ago. Here's at least one title which was there:

Crystal, David & Crystal, Ben: Shakespeare's Words: A Glossary and Language Companion, Penguin Books, 2002.

those books are in the printdisabled program which is why they are in DAISY format. books that are in protected DAISY format only typically are modern books (after 1923) that are not in the lending program.

Dear Jeff

After entering my previous reply I noticed that the title by Crystal (Shakespeare's Words) is listed in openlibrary.org but only available in Daisy format.

BTW, on what basis does Internet Archive decide which books are converted into this format? Just curious.
